  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    On the subject of chippies: Many in NI also serve battered and deep fried scampi (dreaded wiki link here), the best I have had (also excellent chips and fish) is from here. Catch is landed quite literally across the road,...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    Difficult to articulate the mood in NI towards the General Election. Brexit (and particularly the final form it takes) matters, here perhaps more than any other part of the UK, yet the politics has as usual been reduced to "Green...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Glad you enjoyed it! And yes, the disconnect between the size of NI (population-wise) and the shadow it casts on British politics is quite incredible....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Our medical profession has a really bad inability I would add the caveat that this inability is mostly confined to the parts of the "medical profession" that are functionally indistinguishable from senior management in any other large corporation (that is:...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    and why is this kind of flagrant meddling in another country's election -- not even masked by social media sock-puppetry -- not a criminal offense?!? Because the USA is our special friend who is going to save us after Brexit!...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Interrupting the regularly scheduled diversions and strange attractors of the late 700's to bring up something Northern Ireland centric. If any of you are interested in NI politics, and specifically the clown car crash that led to the collapse of...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Organised crime, indeed. I wonder where you could find an organisation, or organisations, that have decades of experience in facilitating smuggling operations of all stripes and much experience in avoiding and evading the law? Perhaps a reach, but also perhaps...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    For those following the horrible lorry deaths story, the latest (still scant) details: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-50162617 It looks like the driver has not been released, but it is not clear whether there is any intent to charge him or whether he is...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I don't have the reference handy, but I believe that recent evidence has surfaced that secret negotiations with the IRA with the aim of a peaceful resolution began under the Conservative government prior to Blair and New Labour (or Tory-lite...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    On the silver lining side, there is a certain amount of joy in watching the DUP get fucked over. Also, despite a last minute stunt in trying to recall Stormont, it looks like the legislation from Westminster enforcing equal marriage...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Previous reply was meant for paws @220. Paying insufficient attention to the reply link I clicked!...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    The use of "British" was carefully considered. The dismissive and contemptuous attitude to the Irish and Republic of Ireland publicly shown by Johnson, Westminster and sundry Little Englanders is shared by more than a few denizens of Northern Ireland (and...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I do think we have to give the writers credit for maintaining thematic consistency across 100's of seasons in regards to the British attitude to and treatment of Ireland and the Irish....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    And, for a look at how far adrift the DUP has come from parts of its base, not just maintstream Unionism and popular NI opion, there is this opinion piece in the News Letter (the Daily Express of Unionist news...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Phew! Just back from spending a few days dodging US and UK agents, former IRA volunteers, disgruntled members of the DUP, and assorted other crazies! It's been fun. Cowsheds and byres are suprisingly cozy. (Note: Do not fall the sheugh.)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    It’s interesting to watch them fall into many of the usual traps (including a number of glaring factual inaccuracies) when discussing NI, and then present their new found knowledge as brilliant insight and “front running”. Certainly shines a light on...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Specifically in Northern Irish slang (although understood across the island), “tout” means police informer. (Of course, seeing as I’m some kind of US-British super-spy, I probably shouldn’t know that!)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    That was of course a reply to anonemouse. I forget to click the "reply" link....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    *needs like button* (And previous reply: If it wasn't so hilariously obvious that they have no idea who I actually am or anything about me, I would be treating the threat a lot more seriously. I have nothing but weary...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    All that nonsense (2195 to 2202, 2204, 2206, and 2207) cheered me right up! Either not aimed specifically at me (you know, the usual excuse), or tilting at imaginary windmills in the hope of some kind of reaction. Whichever it...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    For the latest Irish border related cockwomblery from the Johnson regime: https://mobile.twitter.com/tconnellyrte/status/1178760377678618626?s=21...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Personally I doubt any solution could possibly be dumber than the problem: People willing to start a fight over the name of a city. It’s prettt damn ridiculous when you stop to think about it rationally....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Ah, if only it were that simple! Sadly the problem isn’t the literal meaning of the name, it’s the cultural and historic baggage....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    My last word on this matter (if only to document the absolutely hilarious and ludicrously convoluted flip-flopping the “mick” insult has resulted in): — It doesn’t matter if it was an insult because I didn’t think anyone was reading it....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Since people have been discussing this, a quick guide to the common names of NI’s second city: Derry — about 70% of the population of NI will happily call it this, with at least another 10% to 20% distinctly unconcerned...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I accept that there was something posted that was labelled as an “apology”, I am II sure of its true intent. Either it was an apology offered by someone who can’t actually see why they needed to apologise; or it’s...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Hm. I think there may be a genuine attempt at apology somewhere in there (slice out the condescension, contradictory excuses, and “I’m sorry you were wrong” bits next time). I do not do “shadow banning”. My mind and my eyeballs...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The bigot speaks......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Apologies for being a bit sharp or hasty with you there. Personal insults and general mockery I have no issue with (I’m wearing my big boy pants, someone wants to call me a fucking idiot, no problem), but I absolutely...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    How very true. If we were all just a little more tolerant of raging bigots, tried to understand them, showed them a bit of sympathy and compassion, then everything would be better? Or maybe just tolerate them because they said...
